TLC: What Works 2019 has ended
Welcome to the Statewide Teacher Leadership and Compensation Conference.
  • Sign up for Three Breakout Sessions: We will have three rounds of sessions that focus on the four components in A Systematic Approach to Elevating Teacher Leadership. Choose the three components that you and/or your team want to focus on: purpose, roles and responsibilities; culture and structures; cultivating dispositions, or assessing impact. Sign up for the order in which you want to work on them. Note that while they are numbered in the paper, they are not chronological and do not need to be done in order. You may want to divide and conquer so that among your team members you attend all four. In order to accommodate the large number of educators, we are limiting each workshop capacity to 100 participants so you may not be able to sign up for the exact workshops or order you want.

  • Administrator Participation: At the same time as the component workshops, there will be workshops designed specifically for administrators. However, we recommend first that administrators attend workshops with their teams. Administrators may choose to attend workshops that meet their individual needs throughout the day.

Limited Capacity filling up

Efforts to initiate or refine leadership begin with clarity of goals and purpose for teacher leadership. To clarify goals and purpose, it is often necessary to define what the concept of teacher leadership is and to describe in action how it looks. Participants will use the text, A Systemic Approach to Elevating Teacher Leadership, to reflect on their current program and brainstorm next steps.
